    Iran, Kazerun in fire and blood: The mullahs regime once again showed its criminal face by opening fire to the people. The uprising continues until the overthrow of the regime.

    Kazerun protests, from January to this day

    Iran, May 17, 2018 – The city of Kazerun in Fars Province of southern Iran ignited once again on Wednesday, May 16th. People from all walks of life protesting the Iranian regime’s policies rallied at the city’s Shohada (Martyrs) Square and marched towards the governor’s office.

    The demonstrators were chanting:

    “No fear, we’re all together”

    “Beware of the day we are armed”

    “Proud Kazerunis, unite”

    “We’re ready to defend Kazerun”

    Protests in Kazerun began on January 2nd where demonstrators were heard chanting “Death to Dictator” and condemning the Iranian regime’s policies through slogans such as:

    “Let go of Syria, think about us”

    On March 8th locals rallied outside the city’s governor office, protesting a plot to divide their city into two towns.

    On April 9th locals continued these protests and continued into the following days.

    On April 17th thousands of Kazerun residents rallied in the city’s main square. Store-owners refused to open their shops. Protesters were chanting:

    “No fear, we’re all together”

    “Protests will continue until we get our rights”

    “Proud Kazerunis, we will not give into shame”

    These demonstrations led to clashes between protesters & state police.

    On April 18th local officials claimed the plan to divide the city has come to a halt. Protesters, however, refused to accept these claims and demanded answers from the provincial governor himself.

    The next day protests in Kazerun reached a new climax, as thousands of locals held a demonstration while the city council, Friday prayer Imam, and state-run media had banned any protests. Women played a major role in this rally, emphasizing how unity among-st all of Iran’s people is needed to stand against this regime.

    The rally continued into Friday, April 20th. Tens of thousands of locals entered the city mosque and completely disrupted the regime’s farce prayers.

    Sunday, April 22nd – Oppressive police units were stationed at a market close to the Shohada (Martyr) Square to prevent any gatherings from taking shape.

    Friday, April 27th – Thousands of Kazerun locals rallied at the city’s main center, marching towards the Friday prayer site chanting:

    “If we are betrayed, we will rise once again”

    “We are from Kazerun, we won’t accept division”

    “Officials from other cities must resign”

    Thursday, May 3rd – Large rally staged outside the city mosque, again protesting plans to divide the city.

    Following Wednesday night’s protests, authorities dispatched a column of anti-riot units from Shiraz and reports indicate over 100 protesters were arrested.

    Youths and families of those arrested rallied outside the Kazerun Intelligence Department demanding the release of all protesters.

    At least two protesters have been killed and a large number of others are wounded, including numerous women.

    Locals of Seif Abad have reportedly blocked a road leading to Kazerun to prevent further dispatching of anti-riot units from Shiraz.

    Maryam Rajavi hailed the people and martyrs of Kazerun, urged dispatch of UN probe mission

    Deadly clashes erupted on Wednesday night (May 16, 2018) between residents and state security forces in Kazerun,  after the authorities launched a clampdown on a peaceful anti-regime protest in the city earlier in the day.

    Reports from activists at the scene suggest at least 2 protesters were killed, dozens were injured and up to 150 were arrested as the regime attempted to stifle further dissent. In the course of clashes, a police station and a police vehicle were set ablaze. Video clips via activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in the country.

    Wednesday night, the regime’s intelligence and State Security forces opened fire on people, killing a number of people protesting against the arrests of a large number of the city’s youths. More were wounded or arrested. At least two persons were shot to death according to reports from inside Iran.

    Kazerun wednesday night 16 May

    Kazerun, Wednesday night May 16, 2018

    In the wake of the regime’s criminal attacks Wednesday night on the defenseless people of Kazerun, the PMOI’s Social Headquarters inside Iran called on the residents of Kazerun and nearby cities to rush to the aid of the wounded and victims and support those arrested.

    The Iranian regime has disconnected Kazerun’s access to the internet and social media since last night to prevent spreading of the news of the city’s uprising. However, the ensuing clashes have been so extensive that the regime’s officials and news media had to make admissions on these protests.

    The people of Kazerun took to the streets once again this morning, Thursday, May 17, 2018, in protest to the clerical regime’s atrocities last night. The protesters were again attacked by the State Security forces and clashes broke out. Shootings and tensions have continued throughout the city.

    President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, hailed the heroic martyrs of Kazerun and the city’s brave and bereaved people. She has called for the immediate release of those arrested and urged her compatriots to rush to the aid of those wounded. Mrs. Rajavi also called for the dispatch of a UN investigative delegation and a representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to examine the situation first hand.

      The mullahs’ actions are nothing short of barbaric. The whole world should be openly denouncing their actions. The same for Israel and their murder of the Palestinian protesters.

    “The little garbage scavengers” innocent victims the Waste Business Mafia in corrupt Mullahs regime of Iran. 

    Garbage Children

    On the eve of May 1st, the International Labor Day, I will present this article to children labor, the most vulnerable people in my homeland. Innocent children, who in the anti-humanitarian regime of Velayat-e faqih, are forced to search among the city’s wastes from morning to night in highly inhumane conditions, instead of the classroom and the family’s warm arms, because corrupt and criminal Mullahs, IRGC and their accomplices want add to their wealth. But it’s not far off the day that by Iranian Uprising, this corrupt and criminal regime, will be thrown to the dustbin of history forever.

    Aziz is a 12-year-old boy, who has no part of his life like ordinary children, he gathers up to 19 hours a day and earns just 300 to 400 thousand Tomans a month.

    ۱

    The existence of child labor in Iran’s capital and metropolitan areas has long been a phenomenon and undeniable crisis, ILNA correspondent reports. The work of a child is a complex, multifaceted complex that has economic, social, cultural and racial dimensions, no matter how unpleasant the child’s work is. The profiteers of this cheap labor force try to hide this phenomenon from the face of the city, and take this out of the watchful eye of observers.

    Various types of child labor have been identified in Iran, from vending to work in aviculture and brick-making furnaces. Each of the types of child labor has its own particular difficulties and is considered to be forced labor, but one of the most difficult forms of child labor is searching and separation of garbage.

    Just take a short trip on the streets of the capital to see the lives of these children, how they are tucked in the trash bin, this is just part of the lives of these children, they are separating wastes in the garages at night to morning then they are collecting garbage in the morning until night.

    Garbage children collect 60 kg of garbage daily

    Investigations from the Imam Ali Association show that average daily garbage children collect 60 kg of garbage and often live in workshops of separating garbage.

    In the meantime, there is no precise information on the financial relationships that exists between garbage children, contractors and intermediaries. Elham Fakhari, a member of the Tehran City Council, in an interview with ILNA‘s correspondent in describing the living conditions of these children, said: “Some of the waste disposal workshops gave dormitory to the children, and it should be clear that these dormitories have been provided by contractors to these children.” »

    The workshops that this city council member talks about, are lack of any health facilities and children are exposed to all types of infectious diseases, including hepatitis, AIDS, and so on. According to Fakhari, most children are also exposed to sexual abuse and experience the worst kind of life.

    These garages are without a sanitary services and these children have to live with adult males and garbage in a space full of mice and lizards.

    Aziz, who only has 12-year-old, is one of those kids. I saw him at Beheshti Street at 22 o’clock, he collected and disassembled garbage for a month and live at Qasim Abad garage in a place without any health facilities at night.

    Aziz spoke to us and said of his working conditions: “At 10am, we wake up and look for waste from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. At 12 midnights, the car returns us to the garage and we have to stay awake and clean the garbage until 6am. We can only sleep from 6 to 10 in the morning, then we’ll eat lunch and look for waste again.”

    This 12-year-old boy, who has no part of his life like ordinary children, works nearly 19 hours a day, earning a salary of 300 to 400 thousand Tomans a month, like other children cannot study or play. His life is summed up with garbage.

    2

    Can I be your kid? So send me a school!

    Reza, a boy, is another garbage child, who I saw him at midnight beside one of Vali Asr‘s luxury stores, with a carriage bag that was as high as its height., and was combed his hair carefully. He, who is eight years old, needs to collect waste every day from 3 pm to 12 pm and send his salary to his parents. Reza abandons his bag and gets us off. In a moment he looks at us and says: “I come with you, can I be your kid? So send me a school! “The story of Reza and Aziz, and almost all of the garbage children are similar.

    The Tehranians produce 9,000 tons of garbage daily, the municipality spends about 800 billion Tomans a day to collect the garbage from the city. Of these, only 3% of the waste is segregated from the source, and the remainder is separated by children, among whom are children aged 6 to 18 years old. In this profitable business, nothing more valuable than the cheap worker who works in the toughest conditions and cannot to sue. A child whose family is dependent on him and afraid of being unemployed, which is why contractors prefer to keep children of garbage as a worker at any costs.

    02

    Garbage Mafia and billions of profits

    The economics of waste, the economy is several billion Tomans. According to Hashemi, the chairman of the city council; the municipality can earn 400 trillion Tomans a year from these wastes. The numbers spoken in this area are several billion, and the garbage Mafia, which is repeatedly replicated by members of the city council, continues to remain in the silent media and news space of this profitable and billion-Toman industry.

    The main victims of this mafia, after the Tehran’s environment, which no longer has life, are children who are being used by contractors or their intermediaries to collect and dispose of dry wastes. In this case, the municipality of Tehran, which is always fingering to it, alleges that he will deal with any violations in this regard.

    The waste management organization is in charge of super-monitoring in the waste sector, and Abdoli, the managing director of the organization, in justifying the use of child labor by contractors and intermediaries in response to ILNA, says: “The use of these children is not with the municipality and the private sector is in violation. »

    “The mayors of the region are directly contracting with the contractors for garbage collection,” he says about the waste Mafia. The supervisor is the mayor of the district; we are just high supervisor. The employer is the district itself and if they do not control, you should ask themselves.”

    Despite the words of Abdoli, has been published on the site of the Waste Management Agency, the names of contractors and how to conclude a contract. Following these remarks, the director of public relations of this organization contacted ILNA’s correspondent and says: “The use of children based on contracts that the municipality concludes with contractors, it’s completely unlawful, but unfortunately this happens. ”

    Nobody is willing to accept responsibility

    It is illegal for children to collect and dispose of garbage, and nobody can deny the phenomenon of garbage children, however, there is no official data on the number of children who are forced to work in waste trash factories only in the province of Tehran to pay for their families. Nobody is willing to accept responsibility so they return all the sins to a monster that called “waste Mafia”.

    ….

    This report is only a small part of the huge tragedy that is happening in our homeland. Street girls, young people who sell their organs just for livelihoods and hundreds of other ugly and disgusting phenomena that have been the product of 40 years of shameful Mullahs rule in Iran, have made our country ruinous. While billions of dollars are spent annually from the wealth of the Iranian people to export terrorism and fundamentalism to the countries of the region, and billions of dollars are stolen by the Mullahs and IRGC commanders.

    In the wake of the big uprising last January, and with the nationwide protests throughout the cities of country that are taking place every day in Iran, under lead by rebellion centers with overthrow this rotten dictatorial regime, will end to all suffering of these children and workers, farmers, women, youth and other social classes of Iran.

    At the end of this article, I offer a poem titled ” Give me your pain ” and a video describing the pain of child labor in my homeland to all these children with this definite hope that freedom and justice are coming to Iran soon.

    “Give me your pain”

    You don’t need to have it,

    For you don’t deserve it.

    May the stars carry away your sadness,

    May hope forever wipe your tears away,

    Wipe the tears,

    That cover your innocent face May your future be built with your strength

    May all your pains forever go away.

      Beautiful writing on such a difficult and sad topic. They should be in school, not collecting garbage to survive. You cover the people that others don’t and made sure they’re not forgotten. Children are always caught in the middle.

    Iran: New protests in Kazerun with chants of “Beware of the day when we arm ourselves.” 

    Kazerun

    On Friday, April 20, 2018, thousands of residents of Kazerun, southern Iran, staged anti-regime protests for the fifth consecutive day.

    People also gathered in the city’s grand mosque and denounced the regime’s plan to divide the city.

    The demonstration was held while the city’s so-called city council, Friday prayers’ leader and state media had announced that all gatherings were banned until the Kazerun city separation plan is determined.

    The angry protesters chanted:

    “Honorable Iranians, support us,”

    “Honorable Kazerun, hail to your dignity,”

    “Our state TV is a disgrace,”

    “Beware of the day when we arm ourselves. If we are betrayed, hell will be raised against the regime”

    and

    “We are ready to defend Kazerun.”

     

     

     

     

     

    Following the courageous demonstration of the people of Kazerun, some local authorities announced on Wednesday that the plan for the separation of Kazerun was being paused. However, people did not pay any attention to the regime’s promises and demanded the governor respond.

    Solidarity of protests, promising of storm 

    Solidarity of protests, promising of storm

    On November 20, 2017, Iran’s Interior Minister said that in some days, have seen 150 protests in the country. Those protests that Khamenei’s interior minister said, just 37 days later, became a tsunami called the great uprising of the Iranian people. The uprising of December 28, 2017!

    These days, the rise of protest movements across Iran is a witness to the live and active volcano of January uprising. An uprising, which has experienced a few months ago, and more powerful than before, has opened a darker horizon in front of eyes of the regime with thousands of inflammatory societies centers, around the country.

    A look at a small portion of the protest movements, demonstrations and strikes in recent days, reflects the social status of Iran on the verge of another revolution.

    The main protest movements have been recorded in various forms of protest and strike in the cities of Isfahan, Ahvaz, Rasht, Kerman, Tehran, Khark Island, Kazerun, Javanrood, Damghan, Kohkiluyeh&BoyerAhmad province, Baluchistan and Baneh in the Kurdistan province.

    These moves have been formed by farmers, workers, employees, young people, Bazar merchants, students, depositors, porters and marketers in border towns, political prisoners and detainees’ families.

    The most prolonged and flaming protest movements have been organized by Isfahan farmers since the winter of 2018, With slogans that are getting hotter and more political day by day:

     “It’s a lie that our enemy is America, our enemy is here.”

    Courageous women played a significant role in the demonstrations of farmers in Isfahan and played a leading role in some demonstrations.

    In the Iranian new year of 1397 (spring 2018), we witnessed an intensifying fire of anger and disgust at the brave compatriots of Kurd from the Mullahs regime, and in recent days in various cities of Kurdistan, shopkeepers and Bazar merchants have been struggling to make widespread striking.

    In Ahvaz, Shush and HaftTapeh and other cities of Khuzestan, people, especially Arab nationals, rose up and protested against the fascist regime.

    Workers who are aware and tired of tyranny and inhuman exploitation Mullahs regime, provoked the flames of protest against the regime in different cities of the country.

    The plundered people by plunderer institutes of regime, in various cities of the country, students and other social classes also contributed to the recent protest movements. This is a small part of the people’s protest movement in just the last few weeks.

    The maturity of the slogans in this period has grown from the specific and guild demands to the slogans of the government’s negation, against the regime:

    Death to the Rouhani

    What have the hands behind the curtain done, with our money?

    Lies say our enemy is America, our enemy is here,

    We are men and women fighting for the right to water

    We fight We dye, to take Iran back

    Hossein Hussein is their slogan, but their honor is stealing,

    Student! get stand up! shout it out the cry has strangled in the throat

    Reflection of the anti-government slogans of the people can be seen in the statements of the leaders and government agents who warn against the social blast and the sinking of the regime’s ship.

    “It’s likely that there will be a series of incidents and threats this year,” said an IRGC head GholamReza Jalali, director of the regime’s passive defense organization April 17. “In a general look, the focus of the threats on the people’s axis is one of the main threats and the enemy seeks to create a problem in the Islamic Revolution in different areas, including social, political, economic and cultural spheres, and can be passed through the social network to the people and engage people”.

    “In late December 2017 and January 2018, we saw a pattern of this issue, the issue of people-centered, economic and social networks in the field of threats is being seriously influenced by the enemy’s efforts to pursue these issues in the security field.”

    What scares this IRGC member, is the multiplication of social movements in rebellion centers. The centers that represent the 1000 Ashraf (as guide of rebellion centers) and have raised the flag of overthrow of the regime with the slogan “Death to the principle of Velayat-e Faqih and the burning of Khamenei’s images in the cities of the country.”

    Iran: Farmers’ Mass Protests In Isfahan, Continued Protests Across The Country 

    Iran Uprising – No. 133

    Mrs. Rajavi salutes the protesters and calls on the general public, especially the youth, to support them

    Farmers of Varzaneh and other Eastern cities of Isfahan province, and a large number of people of Isfahan especially the youth, continued the protests of last weeks, and demonstrated from Khorasgan Square to Jay Street and Ahmadabad Square. The presence of women in this protest rally was spectacular. A number of aged farmers participated in the rally with their shovels.

    They were chanting:

    “Rouhani the liar, where is our Zayandehroud”, “Today is the day of mourning, the life of the farmer is on the air”,Farmer dies, does not accept humiliation”, “Farmer dies; does not accept charity”, “Shameless authorities, they are thirsty for the blood of the nation”, “We are hungry, we’re not going back home”, “Who is tired? The enemy!”, “If you inept to serve, leave your post”.

    People said to the repressive forces that were stationed with cars and repression equipment on the protest path to prevent people from joining farmers:

    “Cannons, machine guns and tanks are no longer effective; shameless police”.

    In another development, looted victims of government scam institutions in various cities, including Tehran, Rasht, Ahvaz, Mashhad, Kerman, and Ardebil, protested.

    In Tehran, protesters gathered in front of the regime’s parliament, and chanted

    “Death to Saif (head of the central bank); Saif betrays, the government supports; May we never accept humiliation; Caspian has stolen, the government has supported.”

    The security forces and the police prevented the spread of this protest movement by arresting a number of protesters and collecting their banners.

    The looted members of the Arman Vahdat Institute in Ahvaz also gathered in front of the branch of this institute. They chanted:

    “Death to Rouhani; bankrupt government is sitting on our money; one less embezzlement and our problems are solved.”

    The looted people of the Caspian Institute in Rasht that consisted of mainly women, demonstrated chanting the slogans of:

    “Caspian has stolen, the government has supported; I will not leave until I get my right; this shameless government, is the cause of the nation’s poverty.”

    The looted people in Parsabad, Moghan (Ardebil province), protested at the site of the Caspian Institute. One of the looted people’s health deteriorated due to the severity of pressures on him and was transferred to the hospital.

    In Mashhad, the looted people held a protest rally in front of Soroush Branch, Vakil Abad Boulevard. They chanted:

    “We have been betrayed, our trust has been violated.”

    In Kerman, looted people held a sit-in protest at the office of Caspian in the city against the looting of their deposits.

    On Sunday, April 8, hundreds of looted people of the Alborz Development Institute also protested in front of the Rural Cooperative Organization on Valiasr Street in Tehran. They chanted:

    “As long as our money is in the air, it’s just the same every day; police be alert, we are victims not thugs; Police, be ashamed, be ashamed!”

    Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, saluted the deprived farmers and the people of Isfahan and the looted people in various cities of the country who, despite the widespread efforts of the repressive forces, continue to protest, and called on the public, especially the youth, to support them. She said poverty, corruption and the plundering of the people’s capital would only disappear by overthrowing the Valayat-e faqih regime and the establishment of democracy and the rule of the people.

    The Challenges and Crises of the Iran Regime in the Iranian New Year’s Perspective. 

    Poisonous cup of missile and regional wars for Iran regime

    In the first year’s speech in Mashhad, Khamenei tried to give a good picture of the condition of the regime in the most critical areas such as justice, corruption, inflation and poverty, unemployment, and economic uncertainty and the issue of liberties, while the image of the Khamenei and his media at the end of the Iranian year (1396), they presented a condition of the regime, indicating crises and super-challenges.

    The question is, what is the reality at the end? Khamenei tried to give a good and so-called “natural” picture of the condition of the regime in the speech for beginning of year, but the result was a reversal. For everyone who has a little awareness of the issues of society, it was very clear that his words were deep crisis of the Mullahs regime.

    For example, in the case of corruption, this time, the issue of corruption has grown.

    As he himself, one month ago, in February 2018, he described the regime’s tragedy as a seven-heads dragon!

    Or in another example, while on February 18, 2018 he said:  “We having been helped to the rich classes of society  instead of paying attention to the poor people,” this time, it was the Mullahs and other officials who blamed the people for their troubles, accusing them of “wanting a lot, a lot eating and spending a lot!!. ”

    The most famous was the naming of the year, which was called “the protection of Iranian goods!”. While this expression and naming, shows a critical situation and a lack of “solution.” because it is very clear that this naming is not based on the material basis.

    Some of the two gangs of the regime in the news media, show along with examples and figures, confess and express concern to the critical situation of the country in various fields. But, apart from all the statements and unspoken ones, the reality of the scene should be assessed from the observation of the crises the regime is struggling with.

    We must first list the most pressing challenges and crises the regime faces , then how can the regime confrontation and resolution of each of these crises are possible?

    Currently, the regime faces several challenges and major crises:

    • The explosion of society and the uprising across the country and turbulent economy of the country
    • The internal challenges of the regime
    • endangering global
    • Regional isolation

    In relation to the explosive atmosphere of the society, we have seen that after the rebellion on January, many Mullahs, Khamenei and other leaders of the regime came to the scene and generally said that the roots of the uprising are both economic and political.

    In economic terms, they are characterized by severe budget deficits, millions of unemployed, poverty, high costs, and so on, but they don’t offer even a solution. For example, the day (Sunday, March 25th) Rouhani came to the scene and said, “We have to think for 3 million unemployed!” But he did not provide any solution.

    But Khamenei said the people’s problem is “a lot of spending, eating and consuming a lot”! Does he not know that this inspire anger and hatred for people who touch the poverty in entire of their lives? He knows, but it does not have a solution!

    In the other hand, regarding the fact that the president of the United States have to decide to put an end to Iran Deal until May 12, the regime must decide for the 2nd and 3rd deal… and either drinking the next poison cups or return  all the sanctions, the seventh chapter of the UN Charter (military action, etc.)

    Now, with the changes at the top of the American political pyramid, the horrors of the regime have become much higher. “I do not think that this agreement can be reformed through negotiations with the Europeans,” Tramp’s new National Security Adviser said yesterday in his first interview. So, we see that there is no solution to the crisis.

    In the context of the economic crisis, a few days ago, the “World of Economics” newspaper wrote: “The Iranian economy remains like a drowning person that only tries to keep itself on the water.”

     

    Although the above has been described, but in the final look, has the regime a solution?

    If it was to be a solution, it would have to appear within two years of its(Iran Deal) implementation, while now, according to the United States announcement, the regime is on a two-way path; its way is to accept the hand Take off missile activities and end its regional interference in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen. Which means the spread of missile poison and a region that, according to Qassim Suleimani, “takes Islam and Shiea and Iran (the regime).”

    Or insisting on missiles and interference in the region that continues along this path leading to death, all bank and oil sanctions, and the threats of the seventh section of the UN Charter are on top of the regime.

    Finally, there is a very important point to point out; it is true that the regime is under the siege of crises from several sides and it has no solution, but the existence of an organized resistance and nationwide protests by leading this organized resistance is the biggest crisis and danger for the collapse and overthrow of the mullahs regime.

    That is why these days, high and low, the regime is fearing of the PMOI/MEK. Especially after a world-class change.

    Maryam Rajavi: Welcoming the Great Nowruz of Freedom 

    Maryam Rajavi: Welcoming the Great Nowruz of Freedom

    Maryam Rajavi attended a ceremony marking the Iranian New Year, Nowruz, on March 20th at a gathering of members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Albania.

    At the outset, Maryam Rajavi laid wreath to a memorial in honor of the martyrs of the December-January uprising.

    She congratulated the Iranian people on the arrival of the New Year, noting that the Iranian year 1396 ended with the season of uprising and that 1397 must be turned into a year full of uprisings. This is an uprising and revolution until victory, she said.

    Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and a number of Albanian political figures also took part in the celebrations.

    The following is the text of Maryam Rajavi’s remarks:

    This is the spring of uprising. Be it that in this victorious journey, the uprisings culminate in the spring of freedom

    Fellow compatriots, dear friends, sisters, and brothers,

    Happy New Year and Happy Nowruz!

    Maryam-Rajavi-Welcoming-the-Great-Nowruz-of-Freedom-10

    With the arrival of the New Year, we can hear the steps of Iranian protesters in 142 cities across the country. We hear protesters and the PMOI combatants of freedom marching, who will ultimately end the reign of this evil regime.

    This year’s spring has passed through the uprisings. Indeed, this is a spring of uprising. Let us hope that in its victorious journey it would lead to the spring of freedom.

    We are delighted to be joined today in this Nowruz celebration by the long-time friend and supporter of Iranian Resistance in the most difficult days of Camp Ashraf, Mayor Giuliani.

    Since the very beginning, he opposed the terrorist designation of the Iranian people’s just resistance for freedom that sought to rid Iran of the fundamentalist mullahs, the real godfathers of Daesh (ISIS/ISIL).

    He also opposed the PMOI’s relocation from Ashraf to the killing field named, “Liberty”, sugarcoated by the United Nations and the UNHCR, considering it to be sheer duplicity.
    He represented the conscientious Americans who also stood with the people of Iran during the 2009 uprisings, opposed the policy of appeasement, and pointed to the right policy.

    I also welcome the dear friend of the PMOI, Minister Pandeli Majko. The names of Pandeli Majko and his wife, Enkelejda, will be remembered in the history of relations between the people of Iran and Albania.
    And we also welcome Mrs. Elona Gjebrea, and Mr. Fatmir Mediu. We thank you for all your efforts that broke through all the obstacles. You are all very welcomed.

    We can, and we must turn the New Year into a year of uprisings

    Fellow compatriots, sisters, and brothers,

    Iran’s society was characterized by protests and uprisings throughout the past year.
    In spring, the Call for Justice movement for the victims of the 1988 massacre, defeated Khamenei’s plans in the sham presidential elections.

    In summer, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran elected their new Secretary General and gained momentum to prepare for the resistance and uprisings.

    In autumn, in the wake of the earthquake in Kermanshah Province, the people of Iran expressed their rage against, and hatred of, the mullahs.

    And in winter, the uprisings erupted nationwide aimed at overthrowing the clerical regime. Since then, the rising waves of protests have been striking at the wall of repression.

    Last year ended with the season of uprising, and the coming year can and must be turned into a year of uprisings. And this is going to be an uprising, a revolution, until victory.

    1,000 Ashrafs as centers of rebellion

    Fellow compatriots,
    In nature, spring follows winter. But the spring of freedom can come at any moment, though not by itself. It will come only if we show our determination and would be willing to sacrifice our lives. It will come only if we are organized and united around a single strategy.

    For this reason, the uprisings in December and January brought the fresh scent of spring in the middle of winter.

    This uprising emerged from under repression. This is an uprising that organizes and unites.

    1,000 Ashrafs or 1,000 centers of rebellion manifested themselves in this uprising.

    Indeed, in the face of such brutal repression, so much demagoguery and deception, and so much misinformation to demonize the resistance, where did these countless young protesters all across the country come from? If this is not a miracle, what is your answer? Yes, this is a miracle; a miracle borne out of perseverance. This miracle came about because of a heavy price paid to keep aloft the banner of the regime’s overthrow. This is a miracle borne out of long years of suffering which sowed the seeds of protests and resistance in society every day.

    We hail the martyrs of Ashraf and Liberty, and the 14-year epic and glorious perseverance in Ashraf and Liberty. The Iranian Resistance’s Leader Massoud Rajavi was correct in saying that Ashraf has multiplied in prisons and across our nation.

    The Iranian people have never accepted this regime, which explains why protests and uprisings have erupted repeatedly against the regime throughout these years.

    But how is this year’s uprising different from the past?

    The difference is that the resistance movement has found the answer for the regime’s overthrow, and the regime does not have any solution for it.

    This time around, 1,000 centers of rebellion played a part in the uprising. And this is why the chants of “death to Khamenei” is heard everywhere.

    Army of spring is on the way and winter of reactionaries must go

    I said the spring of freedom could come at any time. This means that the situation will never go back to the time before the uprisings started.

    The Iranian people are determined to bring about a new era with the help of the combatants of freedom by toppling the religious dictatorship.

    This uprising showed us how to attain our freedom through our own efforts. For this reason, it is new and is directed against backwardness and fundamentalism. It is sketching the future of Iran and is presenting an alternative to the regime.

    Khamenei was forced to acknowledge the reality that the PMOI had been prepared months ago and called for the uprising. He said so to prepare the regime for confronting the PMOI.

    But the time to preserve this decadent regime has passed. Spring of freedom is on its way and winter of repression must go.

    When the people of Iran have the option of a free and democratic government based on the separation of religion and state, and based on justice and equality, why should they have to be content with a reactionary, decadent and inhumane regime?

    The clerical regime preserves its rule by keeping the children of Iran hungry and slaughtering the children of Syria.

    The incompetence and the anti-popular nature of this regime has been exposed at every turn, whether it was the earthquake in Kermanshah Province or the crash of the Tehran-Yasouj airliner, or the explosion of Azadshahr mine in Golestan Province.

    All the factions of this regime, including the so-called moderates and reformists, insist on suppression of protesters, and its so-called moderate president takes pride in siding with the regime’s murderous militias.

    Recently, Rouhani’s Minister of Interior wholeheartedly thanked all factions and media of the regime for their full participation in the crackdown on the uprising in December and January. They have repeatedly declared that they are aboard a ship, which if punctured by the uprising, will result in all of them drowning.

    Today, across Iran, the people are chanting death to the Supreme Leader, on whom the regime relies.

    Having plundered the country’s wealth and resources, the mullahs have run out of cash. The banks, pension funds, and the government are totally crippled and bankrupt.

    Our nation has paid the price for the mullahs’ theft, corruption, and incompetence.

    People have nothing to eat and the economy is in recession. Villages have been destroyed and the cities have become underprivileged. The industries have been shut down and workers have been fired and impoverished. The farmers have been deprived of water, and their life and freedom. And the people’s properties and assets have been plundered.

    Millions of girls and boys are forced into hard labor instead of going to school. And a large segment of the population is hungry and unemployed.

    An uprising and a revolution are needed to alleviate these sufferings.

    The New Day (Nowruz) for which we are striving will bring happiness and hope to this impoverished and oppressed society.

    Khamenei has apologized to the people of Iran for the injustices his regime has brought about. But the Iranian people are saying that is too little, too late.

    If Khamenei is sincere in his apology, he must say that the absolute rule of the mullahs has denied the people their sovereignty, that it is the source of all corruption, and it must be overthrown just like the Shah’s regime.

    The secret to national salvation is death to the principle of the velayat-e faqih and long live the army of freedom

    Fellow compatriots,

    Europe’s long-overdue focus on the threats posed by the Iranian regime’s regional warmongering and its ballistic missile program is of course a positive step.

    Further steps are needed, however, including the expulsion of the regime from the region, shutting down its missile and uranium enrichment programs, and blocking its access to the international banking system.

    All these steps are necessary. However, a comprehensive, decisive, and strategic response to the regime entails standing with the Iranian people and Resistance.

    Iran uprising has brought up the freshness of spring. Europe must also abandon the decades-long antiquated policy of rapprochement and recognize the struggle of the Iranian people to overthrow this regime. It should also recognize the democratic alternative, i.e., the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

    The people of Iran demand immediate action, change, overthrow, and freedom. They demand bread, jobs, and housing. They demand the immediate abolition of all government coercions, including the compulsory hijab.

    Dear compatriots,

    For the Iranian Resistance and all its members and supporters, including the centers of rebellion inside Iran and the sympathizers of the Resistance around the globe, 1397 is going to be a year of unwavering commitment to continue and lead the protests to their ultimate goal.

    It is with such determination and such a commitment, that I congratulate the defiant people inside Iran and millions of Iranians abroad.

    Congratulations to members of the NCRI and supporters of the Iranian Resistance around the world.

    Congratulations to the PMOI freedom fighters. You have the responsibility to continue the protests and expand the centers of rebellion.
    My warmest congratulations to the young protesters. Spring sends its greetings to you all.

    And congratulations to Massoud Rajavi, who formulated the strategy to foment the uprisings and bring about the overthrow of the ruling regime by relying on 1,000 centers of rebellion, led by the combatants of freedom.

    In the beginning of the New Year, let us remember those who gave their lives in this uprising. We will never forget them. They remained unknown, but they were the source of pride and recognition for the Iranian nation. We particularly honor the innocent youths who lost their lives under torture. They are always with us in spirit. They are the sacrifice of a nation as it strives to gain its freedom.

    We also hail the prisoners of the uprising and all political prisoners in Iran. We tell them that your endurance has brought Iran’s freedom much closer.

    And finally, I would like to tell my fellow compatriots in Iran that freedom is within reach, but it can be realized only through our efforts and our determination.

    As Massoud Rajavi once said, “The secret to national salvation, is death to the principle of Velayat-e Faqih, long live the Army of Freedom.”

    So, help your children in their protests. Help the centers of rebellion. By expanding the protests and resistance you must rise against the religious tyranny and welcome the great Nowruz of freedom for the people of Iran.

    The mullahs should rest assured that this uprising, and revolution will continue until victory no matter how long it would take.

    Congratulations on the beginning of the New Year 1397.

    Nowruz of uprisings, Nowruz for Mojahedin, Nowruz for centers of rebellion

    I would like to conclude my remarks by addressing you, my sisters, and brothers here in Albania:
    Congratulations on the New Year, and for being so determined.

    Since the onset of the Resistance, we have mixed the tradition of Nowruz with our call for freedom, meaning that we will maintain high hopes for the realization of freedom and will continue our relentless struggle and make whatever sacrifice to achieve it.

    Let us pay homage to the martyrs of the 1980s and our massacred brothers and sisters in 1988. Let us honor the martyrs of Ashraf and Liberty and all those who gave their lives for freedom.

    Today, we are celebrating the Nowruz of uprisings, the Nowruz of the PMOI and other combatant forces, and the Nowruz of the centers of rebellion.

    Your strategy has proven to be correct. Your perseverance and suffering have borne fruit.

    Precisely for this reason, we must renew our commitments and responsibilities as Nowruz comes. You will be playing a decisive role, as well as your organization. We are in a decisive year.

    This year is one of taking on greater commitments, it is time to refresh, it is time to strengthen our resolve to hope and to realize those hopes.

    I hope, and I am confident that this year, you can shoulder hundred times more responsibilities in order to advance at remarkable speed our historical commitment, namely freedom for Iran.

    In renewing this commitment, I again congratulate you on the New Year.

    Nearly 200 European Lawmakers Support Iranian People’s Uprising for Democratic Change 

    By Al Riyadh Daily

    The office of Mr.Gérard Deprez, MEP Ministre d’Etat, Belgique and the Chair of Friends of a Free Iran in European Parliament issued the following Press Release.

    We are announcing the joint statement of 197 members of the European Parliament in support of Iranian people’s uprising for a democratic change. The signatories are from all political groups and tendencies in the European Parliament and include several Vice-Presidents of the parliament and Committee and Delegation Chairs.

    The uprising which began on 28 December and continued for nearly 2 weeks, shook Iran. The nationwide protests covered all 31 provinces of Iran and over 140 cities. The people of Iran, especially the younger generation, have made it clear that they are fed up with Islamic fundamentalist rule and want a regime change. Many chanted “down with the dictator,” “down with Khamenei” and “down with Rouhani.” Women played an active role in the protests.

    The regime’s response was to use violence. Thousands were arrested. Already 14 of the protesters have died under torture. The human rights situation has deteriorated in the wake of the recent protests. Iran continues to carry out the highest number of executions per capita globally.

    Many senior leaders and officials of the regime have spoken about the role of the main opposition PMOI (or MEK) in the uprising. According to AFP, on 2 January, Rouhani called President Macron and asked him to take action against a Paris-based Iranian opposition, which he accused of fomenting the recent protests. On 9 January, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader, said the PMOI had organized the uprising and implicitly threatened to execute the protesters.

    We condemn the use of force against the defenseless protesters and call on the EU and European governments to adopt effective measures and binding decisions to compel the regime to release the political prisoners.

    We are troubled by the misinformation campaign by the Iranian regime against Iranian exiles. It seems that as the regime is besieged by uprisings, protests and strikes all over the country, it needs more than ever to spread false information against its opposition to restrict their activities. Tehran must not be allowed to extend its policy of repression and harassment to Europe against dissidents and political refugees who should be able to raise public awareness for human rights and women rights in Iran.

    We are quite critical of the current policy of the EU regarding Iran. Human rights in Iran cannot be compromised or marginalized on the pretext of political considerations, trade or the nuclear deal. Any expansion of political and economic relations with Iran must be conditional upon a clear progress on human rights, women’s rights and a halt to executions.

    Iran’s genuine Nowruz(Persian New Year) is on its way. 

    Maryam-Rajavi--Iran--Nowruz-

    Maryam Rajavi: The protest movement has not stopped. Waves of protests follow one another. This is how people rise up and create their genuine feast of freedom.

    This winter, entwined with protests and uprisings, is now going to give its place to spring in such a way to prepare the future year for movement and uprising and for advancement towards victory and freedom.
    In reality, the protests did not stop their movement despite widespread arrests and especially the regime’s slaughter of innocent youths under torture. The movement continued to thrive in the general strike of Baneh, the extensive protests of the Steel workers of Isfahan, the protests by workers of Haft Tappeh Sugar Cane Factory in Khuzistan, and the uprising of the farmers in east Isfahan. Waves of protests follow one another.
    This is how people rise up and create their genuine feast of freedom.
    The rise of this blissful Nowrouz is coupled with the fall of the old regime and the ruling fundamentalists. The mullahs’ religious tyranny faces multiple challenges: A powerful popular protest movement, an internal fight over Khamenei’s heir, its shrinking financial resources, a deadlock in the war in Syria, international tensions over its ballistic missile program and the JCPOA, the defections from its Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), etc. However, the most terrifying for the regime are four major incidents:
    The most terrifying things for the regime are four major predicaments: The ubiquitous chants of “death to Khamenei”, eruption of the protests despite maximum suppression, and the absence of external escape goats such as the war with Iraq or the fight against Daesh, and assistance from advocates of the policy of appeasement. This year, in contrast to the previous years, the regime has no way out.
    The clerical dictatorship is at an impasse which is the product of years of steadfast perseverance of the people of Iran, their valiant children in the PMOI, and the protesters. This is, of course, very important but what is more inspiring for the people of Iran is the new horizon which has emerged through the uprisings in December and January and is going to answer the question of regime change by 1,000 bastions of rebellion, 1,000 Ashraf’s and the Army of Freedom.
    The time has come for the great house cleaning in our homeland.
    Iran’s genuine Nowruz is on its way.

    Iran Regime Will Soon Fall 

    The Iranian Regime is on thin ice and they know it, as demonstrated by the protests that were seen all over Iran on Tuesday night, during the national Fire Festival, and the Regime’s brutal response to it.

    These large anti-regime rallies suggest that the Iranian people will not be giving in, no matter what the Regime does, until they’ve realised their ultimate objective of regime change. These protests have brought together the Iranian people – no matter their gender, class, job, or religion – to rise up against the mullahs and they will remain united in this effort.

    From women demanding equal rights, to farmers opposing the wilful destruction of their crops, to religious minorities demanding their right to practice their faith, all of these valid and worthy protests are snowballing together, which is why the Regime has been sending in the troops.

    A spokesperson for the Iranian police reported that they were using “5,000 officers, 10 million accomplices, 1,100 traffic police vehicles, 27,000 special police patrols, installing 1,330 police trailers, 3,770 patrol vehicles, 2010 motorcycle patrols, 2,900 on-foot patrols, 1,700 temporary inspection centers, 104 permanent inspection centers and 30 helicopters” to suppress the protests.

    Scared of the people

    That would be a massive overreaction if the Regime wasn’t scared to death of being overthrown by its people, and yes, the so-called moderates in the Regime almost certainly approve of these measures.

    In February, Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi foretold that the protest movement would continue until they get regime change and noted that the Regime knows that it is incapable of containing it.

    She said: “The wall of fear has been cracked, and nothing including arrests, killings and torture can prevent the advancement of the protests to overthrow the regime.”

    The Iranian Resistance, including the National Council of Resistance of Iran and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), are supporting and encouraging the protesters and it is working. Tuesday’s protests were largely the result of a call from the MEK to attend in spite of the Regime’s threats.

    The West’s role

    The West has recently begun to acknowledge the threat posed by Iran’s ballistic missiles, but how long will it take them to realize that the Iranian people want regime change?

    Human rights activist Heshmat Alavi wrote on Al Arabiya: “It is high time for the West to realize appeasement vis-à-vis Tehran is not welcome as protesters express their abhorrence of this clerical rule.”

    He advises that the European Union recognize the Iranian people’s demand for regime change and start to adopt measures against the Regime, in particular for human rights abuses of the protesters.

    He also states the EU should end trade deals with Iran, as the money largely goes to prop up the Regime and its violent militarized police force, the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

    He advises that another good starting point would be to have the United Nations investigate the mysterious fates of protesters in custody.

    Alavi wrote: “Europe should jump on board with its Middle East allies and the United States in adopting a firm Iran policy. Silence in regards to Tehran’s unrestrained quelling of protesters simply seeking their God-given right of freedom is unacceptable.”
